One of our employees, who attends Shoreline, installed it last night with ease using one of our user-friendly, repositionable, wall mural materials.
Here at High Resolutions, we do quite a bit of work for some local churches as well as churches across the country that find us on the web. One of the local churches that we work with often is First Baptist Church Concord. Here are just two recent projects that we helped them accomplish.

After we renovated to fit our new Xerox 770 Digital Color Press into the building, we had a blemished wall that really needed some cosmetic work. It’s highly visible when you enter our office area, so we decided to do it the High Res way. Instead of drywall mud and paint, we printed our own […]

Election season is upon us once again, and with this season comes stump speeches, rhetoric, accusations, mud-slinging, and advertising. Perhaps advertising is one of the most notorious to people since it’s the hardest for us to ignore. Chances are that if you live in a neighborhood, you can see more than a few campaign yard […]
Some of the greatest banner designs can be ruined by the finishings. It’s not to say that the banner is mishandled or that their was a lack of craftsmanship. It’s simply a lack of foresight. As designers and artists, we are compelled to design first. Ask questions later. In an effort to avoid the unexpected, […]
The University of Tennessee Men’s Athletic Department and The Tombras Group recently developed a new campaign for the men in orange. Once the wall art was designed, we stepped in to “make it happen”.

I had a conversation with a fellow sign-maker recently that turned into a battle of wits. It was fun. No harm, no foul. We were both trying to convince the other of whether width or height comes first in the world of 2D measurements. Thus, the inspiration for this article. Whether you’re into a building […]
Here’s another great partial-wrap we had the pleasure of executing. This 2010 Toyota Prius had a lot of challenging body lines and tight spaces to work in, but it was certainly rewarding to see the final product. This is a great example of a partial wrap.

Etched Glass Vinyl (Frosted Vinyl) is often a great solution for obscuring the line-of-sight to offer privacy, while maintaining an open feel.

Good work for good […]
